Desertbloom

26

First I have to thank all of you, for those wonderful and inspiring comments.
I have managed to move on- less blocked. I started to sketch and make Jewellery, and am able to ignore my nagging voice.
Also did a lot of thinking. I feel not good enough because I set my standard at perfection... and one of the reasons why I was flooded with inspiration but unable to produce anything- was my own randomly set deadlines!
Concentrating on a theme each month works great in terms of getting plenty (even too much) inspiration. But I got myself completely worked up with meaning to finish all the projects on Lily of the Nile... since today is the 24th and I am starting a new theme. So I blocked myself with a deadline,I had set simply out of a whim!
Well, I shall stop babbling on about my own failings- let me tell you how I overcame them
After posting about my block, I went round my favourite blogs... and this is what the fabulous Anairam posted.
A completely different look at succulents, so absolutely ingenious! I had been looking at succulents nearly the entire month, but was unable to translate it into anything. Seeing this was startling! So different of what I would have ever done- but it hit exactly what I wanted to express! So I looked at my vast amounts of photos of succulents again, and then

Lots of potential in those sketches. It is amazing to have friends all over the world of similar interest who inspire and motivate. I consider you and Anairam dear friends although we are hemispheres apart. Have you two ever got together?
